The Three Musketeers

Trivia: Oliver Reed almost died when he was stabbed in the throat during filming of a swordfight scene.

Continuity mistake: When D'artagnan follows the Landlord's Wife after their liason, and finds her in the street with the Duke of Buckingham, he drops to his knees to apologise for his rudeness, and we hear a splash to indicate he has just kneeled in a sizeable puddle. When the shot changes, he is still kneeling, and he is not kneeling in a puddle at all.

D'Artagnan: Now, that man in his time has insulted me, broken my father's sword, had me clubbed to the ground, laid violent hands on the woman I love! He is inconvenient.

Question: Why was Cardinal Richelieu's costume changed from red to purple?

Answer: Red is the "color" of the holy church; purple is the "color" of royalty. Richelieu aspired to royalty, not piety.
